Bullet Journals

Recommended Posts

MuggleMaybe

Back in December I hopped on the bullet journal band wagon, and I am really enjoying it! Does anyone else use bullet journaling? 

I always get really excited when I make new pages, so I thought we could have a place to share photos and ideas :) 

I did my February spread tonight!

 

p.s. If you don't know what I'm talking about, the essential premise is explained +here

I’m trying to do a bullet journal for my writing/story bible journal 

This is what I have so far for my bullet journal for writing, I’ll upload the story bible soon :D

this is a tracker of stories that I’m working on, and how many chapters I’ve done so far. (I’m still adding stories to it)

this is going to just be random quotes I’ve found/thought of.

 

this is all I have so far :D

I bought a journal and stencils for my bullet journal. I'm not using it as a planner like I think a lot of people do, but I'm using it for my original fic project planning. Y'alls are wayyyy cuter than mine, but here's a page from it (some of my foul language is scribbled out for the sake of the site....sorry):

Tammi, I love seeing your journal! Sadly, Paula, your photo isn’t loading for me. But I’m excited to find another person who uses one, regardless!

i (belatedly) did my May spread today:

I've been wanting to do this for a while. 

This isn't a bullet journal, per se, but it's getting there :roflol: . I really wanted to put some effort into at least STARTING to work my way towards a bullet journal this month, so I managed to put myself together a mood tracker and a monthly to-do list:

Ok how am I only just now discovering that this topic exists?? I am such a bullet journal junkie that it's almost unhealthy. Here are some recent spreads of mine  :P

These all look great! I've been wanting to get into bullet journaling for a long time (to the point where I've literally bought a book and markers haha) but haven't started! Any tips for a beginner?

These bullet journals are so beautiful :wub:

 

I've been thinking about trying to get into it for a while as well, but I have a few questions some of you lovely people might be able to answer first?

 

How long do you spend on average each day using your bullet journal? Do you use it at a certain time each day?

 

And if you're a perfectionist, how do you deal with messing up writing/not getting a page to look exactly the way you want? (This has been enough to make me abandon notebooks in the past...)

I've been wanting to get into bullet journals for forever omg. My main concern it, I'll spend an inordinate amount of time each week setting up the actual spread, instead of spending time being productive. How long does each spread take you? :P

I feel like this definitely varies from person to person (I've seen people on Tumblr who make these meticulous spreads that must take hours to do), but I timed myself once for the heck of it and it takes me about 25 minutes to do a full four-page weekly spread. Which sounds like a lot of time I guess, but for me it's this nice little thing I do every Sunday evening that just gets my head into gear for the upcoming week.

Other than making the actual spread, no more than like 10 minutes per day, because at that point, it's basically just a hand-drawn planner. I like trying to be in the habit of looking at it first thing in the morning and just before bed, but I'm not always the best at sticking to that one. :P

For me, my bullet journal is basically the one place I'm allowed to make mistakes because literally, no one else will ever see it but me (unless of course, I post a picture of it like I did just now lol). So for me it's basically become this low-pressure situation where I can tackle some of my worst perfectionist tendencies head-on. (like, you see that "m" in may? I messed that up horrendously and it killed me at first, but now I barely notice where it's all wonky)
